    With perfect weather much of the year, stunning mountain vistas, and easy access to the ocean, Los Angeles has always been a popular place to settle down. This makes inventory hard to come by. “It is definitely a seller’s market. Inventory is low and the buyer pool is large. Things that are priced well, are selling quickly,” says Douglas Elliman broker Tim Durkovic.

    Pasadena, celebrated for its stunning building preservation and sense of community, has steep competition for good reason. The neighborhood has become popular as a result of its seamless meeting of past and present, where old architecture meets up-and-coming shops and dining.

    Best known for the Rose Bowl and its sister parade, the city is brimming with charm and architectural landmarks. Notable homes in this enclave mirror its rich history, and celebrated dining and shopping options have stimulated its growing popularity. As a Pasadena resident, Durkovic touts the neighborhood’s appeal, “Because Pasadena is so much larger than its neighbors, it has several different attractions including the Rose Bowl, museums like the Norton Simon, good restaurants, and cool places to hike.”

    Those who call Pasadena home live a charmed life with easy access to these hot restaurants and essential shopping destinations. Here’s a guide of the best places to visit in this buzzworthy town.
